Reading The Bible - how where when?

Girls, I need your help with my Preach for the Word and Worship event
7.30pm Saturday 19th March.

I'll be talking about us flourishing and growing as Christian women - and part of that is us personally reading the Bible. SO...what are your tips, routines, hints? How do YOU read the Bible? Where? When?
I'd love to hear your stories - things that help you and things that hinder.
Oh yes, and remember there's no condemnation!!!
This is an area of following Jesus where many of us can feel guilt because it can be really hard to regularly spend time reading the Bible and praying. It's hard!
But one of the things I want to say on Saturday is that there is GRACE , not guilt; and we can help one another in this!
So please leave a comment or email me and I'll include your stories - and help eachother

Remember to tell your friends and other women you meet - flyers are available at Kerith reception and you can read more information online on our page of the Kerith website. Let's do all we can to make sure that all women know about this evening.
I really believe it's going to be a great event for ALL WOMEN - all ages, all stages of our Christian lives - hope to see YOU there too! x

Hey!I find that reading my bible in the bath, or if I'm having a shower I'll read my bible for 5/10 minutes after the shower. xx

I use YouVersion on my iTouch & read the one day daily devotional in bed as soon as I wake up. This means I don't forget to do it and it sets me up for the day. I generally read the whole chapter instead of just taking the one verse it highlights.

I sometimes read the verse that's been highlighted that day just before I go to sleep at night. In the past it's helped have a great & peaceful night's sleep.

From time to time I also enjoy picking up my 'proper' & favourite Bible (the one with real pages!) and reading about characters, recently Abraham, Noah & Joshua. I'm just about to start Ruth.

It's not always easy to decide to read my Bible but it's always more rewarding than the DVD or TV programme option :0)

I downloaded a daily bible andriod app. I love it! Everyday I get new scriptures some long some only a couple of verses. I find I look at it serveral times throughout the day, which I really benefit from. I find it does actually make me think about what God may be saying to me.

I Have Decided To Follow Jesus, No Turning Back

I have decided to follow Jesus...no turning back.Take a listen to this beautiful song from Hillsong - every time I hear these words and sing along it changes my perspective, turns me around, gets my focus off me and onto Jesus - "Christ Is Enough For Me". ...No turning back, I've been set free...Christ is enough for me.

Discover your Worth, your Strength, your Purpose

Following a successful Kerith launch in the Spring, Sarah Farley and her team are ready to go again,leading their 2nd SHINE course.
SHINE is an eight week self esteem course for women. The evenings are a mixture of Talks and discussion time, with a practical approach to learning. It's a really encouraging environment, and the evenings are a lot of fun. The course starts this Tuesday evening, and there are still some spaces available.Here's your personal invite from Sarah!Shine is about to run again and I'm excited to see what God is going to do this time round. If you haven't already heard, Shine is a course designed for women who want to live their life in abundance, the way God designed them to live it. To recognise all their worth, to grow in self-esteem, to see all their strengths and positives and ultimately live a life of purpose.We've still got a few places left so if you're interested there's more information here on the Kerith website, where you can…

Not the Summer I'd Planned

"Life's detours means  God wants you to run right into His arms  so He can reconstruct your heart"  Ann Voskamp
Well, let's just say that it's not been the summer I thought I was going to have!!! 
I'm so grateful we had our relaxing holiday in the sunshine
I'm so grateful it's summer time, and therefore not so many work commitments
I'm so grateful for my family being around
I'm so grateful for a wonderful and kind church family

If I was going to have an accident ...to slip over on the back door mat....in my wedges...feeding the dogs.. and dislocate and fracture my ankle...then I'm so glad I was at home with family around and with access to swift expert medical help.

The accident was so sudden and it was immediately obvious that I couldn't sort it on my own! I'm pretty squeamish so I'll save you the details, but the angle of my foot prompted me to say out loud "I've just done something really bad".

Funny isn't it, when yo…
